[texts]Ideas, Part I - Edmund Husserl
Edmund Husserl Ideas, Volume One.(1913) Translated into English. This work is the true foundation of phenomenology as the transcendental science of pure consciousness; it becomes the foundational science of all sciences, allegedly replacing all metaphysics, or "first philosophy". Husserl struggled with and profoundly explored the Cartesian postulate of the ego, single-mindedly probing its enigmatic conundrums in an effort to give a perfectly lucid and precise account of what philosophic man is.

[texts]Allan Bloom: Response to Fukuyama's *End of History and the Last Man* - Allan Bloom
Allan Bloom's analysis of the incoherence of Fukuyama's popular & popularized hypothesis after the fall of the Soviet Union and collapse of the Warsaw pact. Bloom shows that Fukuyama has synthesized two notions derived from the thought of Nietzsche and Hegel which contradict one another, forming a nonsensical, not to say highly unpolitical, picture of our situation. Fukuyama seems to celebrate and deplore the victory of liberal democracy in the same breath...

[texts]Why War? - Nigel B. Cook
Cyril Joad's 1939 "Why War" propaganda book. Joad led the infamous 1933 Oxford Union argument for the motion "This country will not fight for King and Country", which sent dictators everywhere the message that Britain was turning pacifist and weak. Joad simply "ridiculed" all of Winston Churchill's sincere warnings about Hitler's racist Nazis as being exaggerations, and claimed that we could peacefully defeat the Nazis for surrendering and then using non-violent resistance (such people were simp...
